“Vagina wigs” also known as Merkins, made their pubic public appearance this season during fashion week in New York. A South Korean designer named Kaimin paraded models down the runway in Mohawks with matching mini pube Mohawks. Nobody remembered the clothes. “We really wanted to push the futuristic punk aesthetic of this seasons’ collection and having matching hair and merkins was perfect,” said the designer. Well, at the least “It’s a look.”
Meanwhile, during the AVN Novelty Expo in Las Vegas, a giant booth of vag wigs from Lithuania made their appearance with over 300 styles on display. Apparently, fake pubic hair wigs are big in Lithania. Who knew?
Merkins go back to the 1400’s when prostitutes used them after they shaved their bushes to avoid getting lice. But who wears these things today? “Merkins are used by go-go dancers, in strip clubs, as novelty gifts, and in sex games when a genital hair piece can add to the fun,” explains the company, merkins.eu.
So little time, so many choices: there is the cute red kitty one and the smiley face one. And the heart one and the mini pink cat mask one. So cute. Love.
Pet the pink faux kitty.
And thanks to the Lithuanian dude manning the booth at the expo who gave me the one with the arrow pointing downwards, because I can’t wait to shave my pubes, put that baby on and parade around for the boyfriend so he can have a good laugh.
The furry pube accessory says “Go down there.”
These stick-on things would also be a hit at Burning Man, for all the naked ladies who want to go naked but don’t want to show too much of the merch. They would sell out of these wacky, sexy things actually if they let people sell stuff at Burning Man.
In the “fun merkins,” section you can get a cross, fox, penis, or a heart one. In the “kinky merkins” section they have a super bushy one, a gnarly grey one, and a scary studded one. “Patriotic merkins” include an American flag, Jamaican flag, British flag and a rainbow flag. The “realistic merkins,” range from landing strips to pube wigs that look like tiny shag rugs. Their “romantic merkins” include hearts, bows, and butterflies that are sparkly or fluffy.
